Our Warzone sniper rifle tier list for September 2022 is here to go over which of the guns are the best to use now that the new meta has settled down a bit once again after the launch of Raven Software's latest major balancing update.

Since the initial Season 5 patch, Warzone players almost surprisingly haven't seen any weapon nerfs and buffs made just yet. However, that's not to say that the meta still isn't continuing to evolve. As such, here is how the sniper rifles stack up in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 in September 2022.

September 2022 Warzone Sniper Rifle Rankings

S Tier

Remaining comfortably in the S Tier in Season 5 are the 3-Line Rifle, Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle and ZRG 20mm. Although it remains a bit of a discussion as to whether or not a headshot with a sniper should be an automatic knock or kill in Warzone, players surely won't have to worry about that with these three options.

A Tier

In the A Tier are five snipers that are still top-tier viable and remain generally very balanced to use in Warzone. Essentially, these options are sitting right outside of the main meta, but are still able to get the job done and allow you to be competitive.

B Tier

These weapons in the B Tier remain viable, but could still use a slight buff in order for more players to seriously consider using them.

C Tier

The C Tier includes three rifles that still definitely need some more buffs and are still not close to having a place in the Warzone meta.
